Excellent 8.0
Pros: A smaller resort, situated within easy reach of the main town. The rooms were spacious, with aircon and lots of hanging. Two pools to choose from or laze on the beach. Lovely, helpful staff.
Cons: The food could have been better. It was average.
Excellent 8.0
Pros: The units were fabulous, clean and comfortable. Office staff fabulous.
Cons: Tidal beach, option to buy cooked breakfast
Excellent 9.0
Pros: The hotel is really nice, quite and good located just in front of the beach, very clean too.
Cons: Breakfast could be better but is not bad, they have several options. I think that they should add some croissants or cakes
Excellent 10.0
Pros: The very friendly hospitality.the general ambienceof the resort..
Cons: The price.far too expensive
Excellent 10.0
Pros: Loved its simplicity- not commercial, quiet, stunning location and wonderful, friendly staff. Delicious food as well.
Cons: Nothing except maybe the bed, 2 doubles pushed together with egg crate. It could have been more comfortable.
Excellent 9.6
Pros: The two large and deep pools in proportion to the number of overall resort size, and beautiful garden surroundings make it an excellent place to relax and unwind.
Cons: Some improvements to the blinds could make the rooms more sound proof to keep out noises of roosters and guests that don't know how to keep their voices down outside when it's dark.
Excellent 9.6
Pros: This is our 3rd stay at the Sunset over the last 8 years and we'll keep coming back as we love it. The relaxing atmosphere, cleanliness, beautiful gardens, and fantastic pools make it the perfect place to enjoy and unwind. This we we tried another resort but only lasted two days before cancelling and booking into the sunset. The extra cost was worth it. Continental Breakfast was good with fresh local fruit and fruit salad every day.
Cons: The roosters....But that's part of life in the Cooks and you get used to them!! Maintenance on the metal window shades would help.
Good 7.5
Pros: Despite a few cons, we all loved staying at this hotel and would recommend others to stay here. The beach outside the resort is probably one of the nicest that we saw on the island and felt very private. If you want to relax undisturbed on a hammock then this is the right place. The two pools were good sizes and very clean. The whole resort felt very well maintained. We were very impressed with the standard and amenities of our rooms in the pool side villas. The quality of food in the restaurant (a la carte) was also very good (although breakfast is quite standard) - we also found the staff in the restaurant very friendly!
Cons: Unfortunately we found a couple of the staff on reception to be quite unfriendly and unhelpful when we had questions about activities on the island. We didn't have the best check in experience as we had to wait over an hour for our transfer (knowing this we would have got a taxi which works out the same price). We stayed at Sunset over Christmas, and it was a shame that more effort wasn't made around the hotel to put it in the Christmas spirit (E.g Christmas songs/ decorations on Xmas day, or even a special morning breakfast would have been a nice touch). The pool bar was also unstaffed the whole time we were there.

Good 7.0
Pros: The quite west facing beach. The approachable staff. the sound of the sea. The live music. Suggestions and advice on tours. New local doctor
Cons: The road noise. the cockroaches, the poor wifI at times. Could have been offered 3 days wifi hotspot free.
Excellent 9.0
Pros: This is a compact Resort and I loved there was no hustle and bustle with masses of people. The staff are friendly, interactive and incredibly helpful with sharing their knowledge of the "Things to do" in Rarotonga. I am looking forward to heading b ack there again in a year or so.
Cons: It took a little while to get used to the roosters that roam wild but these are a challenge all over the island and are not restricted to just this area.
Excellent 10.0
Pros: Location - a few steps to the water, great spot for snorkelling, wonderful sunsets. Friendly and helpful staff - all with a sense of humour! Accomodation - spacious, well laid out - all the basics for self catering - super strong shower! Substantial breakfasts included - fresh fruit, warm muffins, toast and spreads and of course the local coffee. Welcoming hosts, Steve and Geraldine have a depth of local knowledge which they willingly shared when approached for information eg local places of interest, walks, restaurants, markets.
Excellent 10.0
Pros: Great breakfast experience! Great staff and the owners are utterly lovely. Really can't fault this place one bit, the bar serves a relatively limited menu but the food itself is very good and the bar staff are friendly.
Excellent 9.4
Pros: Great breakfast at the Shipwreck Hut Beachside, colourful tie-dye bedspread & curtains & cute bungalows
Cons: Lots of roosters around the property that start crowing at 4:30am right outside the bungalows!!!!

Excellent 10.0
Pros: Lovely accommodating staff with lots of recommendations for things to do and places to see, the rooms were very spacious and always cleaned beautifully, the pool facilities were the best I've experienced on the island and the cocktails were incredible! Also, go to this place for the sunsets if nothing else. No other place on the island is quite like it!!
Cons: The breakfasts were a little limited with the exact same options every day. It got a little "same same" after 6 days, however they were very nice so not complaining. Just would have been nice to see a couple of different options.
Excellent 10.0
Pros: Beautiful location, nice and peaceful, pool was outstanding. Villas were all fresh and clean. Added bonus of a great view from the sun loungers on the beach out to the whales migrating past. Staff were really friendly and very helpful.
Excellent 10.0
Pros: Manuia Beach Resort is a wonderful gem of a property. Located right on the beach near to Arorangi, and down a long driveway off the road, the resort has 25 villas surrounded by beautifully maintained tropical gardens and some of the villas are directly facing the beach. The rooms had been refurbished during the Covid 19 closure and are very comfortable with new curtains and furniture - we had a super king size bed and a single bed in our room. The outdoor shower is really quirky and fun, great when the weather is hot and also when it is raining. The pool has also been renovated and is fully tiled with a wet edge and a new deck around the pool and out to the beach, complete with sun loungers and bean bags. It is right next to the On the Beach Restaurant which serves a tropical complimentary breakfast every day. The lunches and dinners were superb here also. There is a sumptuous BBQ buffet every Sunday and a fire show, so ensure you book in for that. Facing directly west, we enjoyed beautiful sunsets every night. Being on the leeward side of the island it was mostly protected from the wind, and we seemed to have a lot more sunshine and less cloud cover than other parts of the island where the clouds hugged the mountains some days. The lagoon also had much clearer water than at Muri Beach. The resort provides a shuttle bus to and from the airport. We hired a car through the associated car rental place which is just across the road and the bus stops are right outside the resort's driveway. Note that the resort is 18+, therefore not suitable for families with young children. We were there with our older teenager and there were other families there also with similarly aged teenagers. The staff were top class, friendly, helpful, informative and very pleased to welcome us to their island home.
Cons: The lagoon is a bit rocky and the water is not quite as crystal clear as the sandy lagoon at the Rarotongan, but the Rarotongan is only a short drive or bus ride down the road. Lots of guests still made the most of snorkelling in the lagoon all the way out to the reef.
Excellent 9.0
Pros: Chose to stay at Manuia Beach Resort for 2 nights before travelling to Aitutaki. The resort is well located down a quiet driveway with villas set amongst very pretty and well kept tropical gardens. Good size rooms and recently refurbished to a high standard. The on-site restaurant serves breakfast with a good variety of continental options, and we also ate dinner one night which was very good too. Staff from reception, bar staff, and cleaning ladies are all very polite friendly and helpful. Lovely place to stay and we met returning guests which vouches for the resort being a great choice for a stay in Rarotonga, if for a couple of nights or a longer time. Well priced for the quality of the resort, we would definitely return.
Cons: Nothing we didn’t like.
Excellent 8.0
Pros: Staff really nice! Great location!
Cons: The chickens walk freely for the resort woke up me very early in the morning! Every morning! 😅
Excellent 8.0
Pros: The location is amazing,easily the best thing about Manuia. the pool area is awesome, restaurant is ok, expensive. Rooms are very spacious, love the outdoor shower.
Cons: Noisiness. Our room was beachfront and close to the restaurant. Loud pepple early in the morning and close to the sevice alley was a downer. Had to buy data that didnt work in our rooms and no real help from staff. Had to sit outside office to contact family.

Pros: One of the best spot in Rarotonga where to enjoy the sunset, beautiful location and so peaceful, Dennis and Patti has been great hosts and always available, the attention to the details and the room cleaning are stunning! Highly recommended
Excellent 10.0
Pros: UNIT 9 (small standard bungalow) Your own secluded private gold sand beachfront, beautiful vistas of crystal lagoon and reef 24/7 & the lush mountain terrain, filtered sunshine through coconut trees, the gorgeous & clean spacious pool, your own private deck, private outdoor furniture, bbq, HDMI tv, clear reception, my fav channel 1 NZ news, gorgeous strong hit water pressure shower, great kitchen with all your needs except I never cooked on holiday, exceptionally spotlessly clean, very comforting for the germaphobes like me, Kayaks free for use, yummy fruit trees, fresh fruit to your bungalow each morning, the convenience and extreme cleanliness of the self contained bungalows & the whole propertyin general, the easy walkable location to food & bars both left and right of driveway, awesome Carnivorous & Vegetarian friendly restaurants & cafes, (Beluga is fab, shipwreck bar & restaurant, Cast Away bar and restaurant) absolute FRESH fish n chip shop (Pacific Fish Shop Tues-Thurs 5pm-9pm), dairy's that supply fresh 60c Island donuts lol & other basics. NO DOGS, NO ROOSTERS, NO CATS, NO KIDS- nothing but the noise of palm leaves when a breeze comes by, the waves on the reef & your own noise you make...Great policy! The Kiwi/Cook hosts Patty and Dennis are awesome. Always helpful, naturally friendly, full of great advice, a full reception with holiday tours & a free map. All round great people. Will definitely stay again when we are back.
Cons: We only stayed 6nights, wish we stayed longer.

Cons: Air Con was set on one temperature, happy to pay $2 per hour & 1/2 but would prefer to be able to increase as required, was super hot & was hard to get to sleep. Unit 6 not sure what the other units were like.
Excellent 8.8
Pros: Nicely situated between the main town and Muri with a regular bus stop outside the property. Good pool and free kayaks.

Good 7.9
Pros: Host were great! DVD selection saved the day. Restaurants next door. Plenty of souvenirs downtown and convenience store nearby. There are two fitness centers in town that open in the AM and have showers just in case. 2 miles from the center of town. Beach access is two minute walk.
Cons: Cable news or some sort of TV programming would be great. Free AC would be even better. Tourist information and pamphlets about the island, restaurants, etc. Taxi over charge was unexpected. :-(.
Excellent 8.8
Pros: Owners are very nice and helpful. Room is clean and tidy. You can access the beach within one minute.
Cons: It’s not by the beach. The owner built too many villas on a small land. no view at all, all you can see on your balcony are the other villas, roofs, and someone else’s bed.
Excellent 8.0
Pros: The cleanliness of the property the comfort of the bed the stunning beachside’ with kayaks&beach shoes provided’.No faults thank you Cooks Oasis 😊
Excellent 10.0
Pros: Clean, comfortable beds, friendly and accommodating staff.
Excellent 10.0
Pros: The villa we got was perfect! The kitchen had EVERYTHING we needed and more. The living room was great and comfortable. It was a very relaxed feel throughout. The beach was just a very short stroll away - hammocks and lounge chairs!!! Great to watch the sunset or just have an afternoon nap! Location: close to some very nice restaurants and a great bakery! Matt and Adele are great hosts - great knowledge handed to us as first-timers to the Island. We'll be back! THANK YOU!!!
Excellent 9.2
Pros: Very friendly and helpful hosts. Great location
Excellent 10.0
Pros: Matt is a CHAMPION. Top setup. Reasonably priced. Lots of little extras to make the perfect holiday spot.
Excellent 8.8
Pros: Adele and Matt are lovely hosts and happy to chat or help with local advice. The apartment was spacious and well equipped, except the oven wasn't working which meant cooking options were restricted. Good sized fridge. It's a short walk to the beach for beautifully warm swimming/snorkelling, and their swing seat on the beach is a perfect sunset spot. A scooter is handy for transport as it's a way from the main centre, but you need a full motorcycle license to hire. Otherwise there is a bus once an hour. Free-range (friendly) dogs on site.
Cons: Only niggle is paying top dollar for an 'Ocean View room' which wasn't as advertised. There is no ocean view, apart from a glimpse through trees. They are new owners and have since changed the listing description. The pre-arranged airport taxi is overly expensive for a ten-minute ride ($22 per person), although you get a fresh flower garland (lei) on arrival which is nice. Internet access is prohibitively expensive for this day and age.
Excellent 10.0
Pros: Loved the staff/owners friendliness! Very informal settings including DVDs, laundry, small pool (we never used), water toys such as masks, snorkels, water shoes, ocean kayaks. Well landscaped alleys, private villas. Not exactly waterfront, but 50m (150') walk from the beach is still a great location!
Cons: In USA early check-in, late check-out is a common courtesy (of course based on availability) that appears to be not the case here in the Cook Islands.

Excellent 9.0
Pros: Fantastic location 50m from the beach. 10 restaurants or takeaway places within a 10min walk. Also there was a small shop right across the road which had all our daily requirements. The rooms were spotless and the friendly staff were unobtrusive.
Cons: Unfortunately we didn't have hot water the last day due to some plumbing work being done.
Excellent 9.0
Pros: Nice property right on the beach with pretty gardens, Rooms clean and serviced daily by friendly and helpful staff. Good amenities in the room, fridge and microwave with reasonable kitchen gear. View of the sea from the front deck. Great bakery just down the road, check out their Swiss roll!
Cons: Property was hard to contact when we needed to change plans prior to arrival, (but helpful once there) Take earplugs if you are not keen on being woken by roosters ( happens everywhere in Raro though!)

Excellent 10.0
Pros: We stayed at the Reef Motel because of its proximity to a wedding venue we were checking out. It also is close proximity to the airport. We were very happy with the accommodation. Unfortunately the weather wasnt the best but we felt safe in our room whilst the wind blew and it poured with rain!!!

Good 7.0
Pros: Very good communication with manager and organised excellent pick up and drop off from airport. Excellent aircon already running when we got in. We arrived late and left early so did not spend much time here, was exactly what we needed for one night and our late check in/early check out was organised very well.
Cons: Rooms are a bit basic/outdated There was some music from a bar close by but I think that's just Friday nights
Good 7.9
Pros: Lack of pretention
Cons: Jacuzzi not working Couldn’t access wifi
Poor 1.0
Cons: There is no kitchen sink to wash dishes and only one double set of every kitchen ware for example - two dinner plates, two forks, two knives etc.. There was a family of lizards living in the room that we had to remove. The bath room was swarmed with large fire ants, at least 60+ dead in the bathroom by morning. There were mosquitoes all through the bed as I didn’t have a single bite until I stayed one night here and my legs were covered by morning.
Poor 1.0
Pros: the location is quite close to the town,it is handy for people who is looking for the late flight transit. the owner is nice, i forgot my stuffs in the bathroom, and he sent it back to me. i really appreciated that.
Cons: Even the location is good and owner is reasonable nice, but I have to say I had a nightmare there. I arrived quite late after 12am, and the taxi driver took me in the room. As you could see in the pictures, I spent more than an hour to kill all the bugs in the room. That was so scary, the bugs, big ants, even lizards were everywhere, I used all the pesticides to kill the bugs, then I saw almost an hundred bodies on the floor. I called the owner immediately, I have looked around of other rooms, they were empyt at that time, but he said he could do nothing, no room to change and he could not drive 30min back just to kill the bugs for me. I was absolutely devasted, could not sleep for the whole night, I even want to call the police to help me. The next day when i met the owner, he said might because of the rain yesterday, so all the bugs were in my room. But I think as a local, the owner definitely knows there will be bugs in the room after rain. Why he still left the door open and let all the bugs crawling in the room? That was a nightmare.... I am very upset of spending $125 for staying bugs hole for a night

Okay 5.0
Pros: The beach location is fantastic. The one staff member who deserves a mention is Frankie, exceptionally helpful.
Cons: Sadly the property is tired. Our room was serviced once in 7 days, even though I asked constantly for clean towels etc. The restaurant food is appalling, waiting 1.5hrs for dinner then it was burnt and unable to be eaten, the worst resort breakfast we have ever had, no yoghurt, just milk, a couple of cereals, apples, oranges, toast and croissants. The bar was always unattended and when it was attended most of them had no interest in being there, you would think they would be pleased to have a job with all the Covid disruptions. The cocktails were very inconsistent, some thrown together, some fantastic. One night in the restaurant a table had been set as it has been reserved, the rest were unset and often up wiped. A rat ran across the restaurant one breakfast time, all were mortified. Overall opinion is the management really need to get on top of things and get sorted, this is the opinion of all we met who were staying also.
Excellent 8.0
Pros: Location on the beach and no kids!
Cons: No room service had to ask for clean towels. Service in bar/restaurant bit slow. Need more staff. Food average.
Good 7.0
Pros: The beach, and ika mata.
Cons: Sand floor in dining room and the 10 to 80 percent hike in food prices... Didn't realise your room wasn't serviced unless you asked.
Mediocre 2.0
Pros: Book the cheapest rooms they are ground floor with beach access and great views, the beach view and honeymoon suite are a waste of money.
Cons: Book the cheapest rooms they are ground floor with beach access and great views, the beach view and honeymoon suite are a waste of money.
Excellent 9.0
Pros: The staff are great
Cons: They ran out of a lots of things but its because there delivery are late
Good 7.0
Pros: Nice location and adults only
Cons: The beachfront suite was not a suite it was a studio with only one bedside locker. We expected daily service but at best it was every 2 days and occasionally 4 days and 6 or 7pm. The bar and restaurant was frequently unattended by staff, a 4 star hotel restaurant should offer table service but you had to order at the bar and wait often for 45 minutes or an hour for the food. The tables were left uncleared for hours sometimes, attracting insects, and never wiped or cleaned unless requested. The menu was often limited with no fish or bizarrely no cucumbers on going out to other restaurants although they had a few shortages never were they completely out of fish.
Excellent 8.0
Pros: Good snorkeling and the room was very well appointed. very clean and lovely view. Their could have been more staff on in the bar/reception area as wait times were quite long- often only one person on when there should have always been two.
Okay 4.0
Pros: Location is fine, on the beach - Rooms are a decent size, bed is comfy. The outdoor areas of the hotel are quite nice like the pool and foyer.
Cons: Check in was terrible, we were asked to sit around for an hour and then told the key had been taken to the airport for some weird reason. Check in was slow, staff didn't seem phased about us waiting around...The rooms and the entire hotel itself smelt like a toilet, our room had a horrible smell and it wasn't very clean. A few things looking very worn out/tired in the room, such as the shower drain was broken in the shower. Not the level of service I'd expect for $300 a night. Rooms are very dated and need refreshing. Concerning that they service the room every 2 days - for a four star hotel, i'd expect daily cleaning and not feeling dirty!
Excellent 9.0
Pros: It was quiet, luxurious, and beautiful. You could use the next door hotels facilities but why would you need to with the best of everything there.... plus fabulous that there was no kids!
Good 7.0
Pros: This property is part of The Rarotongan, which has a fantastic restaurant and cocktails. Nice little stretch of beach. Heaps of easy parking across the road which was handy for the car we hired. The view of beach from our room was lovely. Enjoyed this side of the resort being child free.
Cons: It was very busy I believe as a result of tourist numbers dialling up quickly after covid - so service was sometimes delayed. The staff all tried to be helpful though. The breakfast that was included was very basic - but with no kitchen facilities (just a fridge and kettle) it was still handy to have something. Don’t leave breakfast till the last hour!

Pros: Excellent, friendly staff who did their utmost to ensure that our family were informed of the best local shopping, rental car hire, favourite restaurants, Entertainment, Markets, the Tides (which is really important), loved that we had our own private beach outside the gates😊 Clean and tidy units and grounds at all times. Thank you Paul and Jane for all the times I had asked for advice,and you catered to our needs. My daughters' birthday was made so special, a day she will not forget...love how you went that extra mile to ensure she had an unforgettable birthday in beautiful Rarotonga. Highly Recommend 'The Black Pearl at Puaikura' to stay while on holiday in beautiful Rarotonga

Good 7.1
Pros: After traversing the many wonderous places on the Island of Rarotonga during the day, it was great to retreat to the paradise Inn at night. I really was surprised by the staff who make it a pleasure to stay at P.I Cookislands. They went above and beyond expectation to help make my stay an enjoyable one. Manager Chantelle & all the support staff were very understanding & always willing to facilitate assistance with travel plans or give valuable advice when it was needed. Great beach access, close to shops&town. To further explore the Island, it's easy to rent a bike or car from www.polynesianhire.co.ck My room was 3star (as advertised), but I felt like I got the 5star treatment. Considering the price I paid for the length of stay; I would look to revisit Paradise again.
Cons: The place could do with an upgrade

Cons: Reception staff great and the Fijian barman is lovely, some of waiting staff could be a bit friendlier
Excellent 10.0
Pros: It’s amazing
Cons: The bed was hard as rock in the main room
Excellent 8.0
Pros: Right on the reef, lots of activities, friendly staff, kids club for those with children, happy hour every day, car and bike rental on site, day tours can be booked on site. Stunning sunsets and pool. Local bus came through on the hour to take you into town or around the island. Very family friendly 😊
Cons: My room was dated and the bathroom sink was leaning off the wall. Shower was tiny and you could barely turn around in it.
Excellent 9.0
Cons: Staff exceptionally nice. Minirose was outstanding with our booking requests. Much appreciated for an elderly guest and ensured her comfort.
Okay 4.0
Pros: Really disappointed that it was only continental.
Cons: Breakfast lunch and dinner menus. Beach has ALOT of broken glass pieces! Pool was quite cold, not sure why.
Excellent 8.0
Pros: The whole holiday was great. The staff were helpful and friendly. The children especially were really well looked after and doted on by the staff (especially in the restaurant).
Cons: The pool was smaller than expected and a little cold for the kids to be in for extended periods of time. We spent more time in the sea than in the pool.
Good 7.0
Pros: Kids club was awesome, being a bigger hotel - there were lots of families so my kids had a blast. Large spacious rooms, and the position of the waterfront rooms were amazing. Overall a really good holiday. Staff were friendly, no real complaints.
Cons: The swimming on the beach was not the best spot for swimming as it was quite rocky ( not the hotels fault of course!) the pool was OK. They had run out of certain food and drinks and had a relaxed attitude towards replacing things, but I guess it is the Islands!
